COLLEGEDALE, Tenn. — Residents and associates at The Lantern at Morning Pointe Alzheimer’s Center of Excellence, Collegedale, treated local first responders to a hot breakfast in honor of 9-11.

As part of the Meaningful Day™ program, the memory care community looks for ways to give back to those who help ensure our safety.

“We wanted to take this opportunity to thank our paramedics, fire department and police officers for the many sacrifices they make each and every day,” says Dawn Dunn, Lantern Program Director at The Lantern at Collegedale.
